    Hi, this is my first day trying this programme. I read J. Sarno a few years ago and he helped me a lot. But I have been getting on with my life and I seem to have forgotten everything I read before ad now I am trying again after spending 2 weeks at home with lower back pain. I have great belief in TMS but I also at times have to re-convince myself.
    I have to sit at work a lot as I am a free-lance teacher. I need to get back to work and I need to get back to TMS. I´m hopeful but also nervous of set-backs.

    Hi, Kieran. Try not to be worried about setbacks. I suggest you re-read Dr. Sarno's 12 Daily Reminders in his book Healing Back Pain. They are the bedrock of his TMS theory of emotions causing physical pain. I think that in journaling you will discover some emotions that have triggered the return of your symptoms. If you can, get back to freelance teaching, even in a small way. Keeping busy is very helpful in TMS healing.

    Thank you Walt. I have put the 12 Daily Reminders into my Evernote on my phone and now try to remember to read them every day.
